The judges will also be undertaking site visits to all the shortlisted entries in the Private and Affordable Housing Development categories. Those companies shortlisted for Private Development of the Year will also be considered for the prestigious Homes for Scotland Home Builder of the Year award through a rigorous interview process.

Winners will be revealed at the Homes for Scotland Annual Lunch (sponsored by Burness Paull) at the EICC on Friday 17 May which will be hosted by comedian Jo Caulfield.

A keynote address will be delivered by cabinet secretary for communities and local government Aileen Campbell MSP.

Now in its 17th year, over 900 senior industry representatives and guests already confirmed to attend.

Chair of the independent judging panel Andy Mitchell, former land director at CALA Homes, said: “The Homes for Scotland awards are the most credible in our industry, and I was delighted to be asked to chair the independent judging panel for the second year running.

“This year’s panel now faces the difficult task of determining who should take the top prizes in what is an incredibly impressive shortlist showcasing the high quality developments and innovative practices taking place within our sector, which should be rightly recognised and celebrated.”
